Bamboo Top - Malachite

Malachite is a blue-green color.  Darker than Aegean, and more green.  Very rich, lovely color.

This fibre is Bamboo Top.  "Top" means that it has been combed and the fibres are all aligned parallel.  There are no bumps or noils in this preparation.  Characteristics of bamboo are that it is anti-bacterial and eco-friendly. 

It is amazing that this beautiful fibre comes from a bamboo plant.  It is very soft, with extremely fine fibres, and has a gleaming shine.  Spin and ply it with your wool for a bright strand  in your hand-spun or blend it with other fibres.

This fibre also may be used for paper-making.  Your paper will have the shine of bamboo in it.  Bamboo may be included in wet felting.  It must be "captured" like silk.

Malachite bamboo fibre is packaged in 25 gram, 50 gram, and 100 gram portions.  ( 25 grams= 0.88 oz, 50 grams= 1.76 oz, 100 grams = 3.52 ounces).
